With Europe’s January transfer window now open, there’s plenty of speculation about who’s moving where. Transfer Talk brings you the most recent news on rumours, arrivals, departures, and, of course, completed transactions!
According to Sport, N’Golo Kante wants to continue his career at Barcelona, as the 31-year-old Chelsea midfielder’s contract expires in the summer.
So, given that Chelsea has fewer goals than Haaland, who should they sign?
With no sign of a contract extension, the 2018 World Cup winner is on the verge of leaving Stamford Bridge.
Barcelona hopes to maintain their winning streak.
Barcelona are looking to continue their trend of signing high-profile players on free transfers, and it appears that the France international is their latest priority, with the belief that he can continue to perform at the highest level for a number of years.
Despite Al Nassr’s interest, the Blaugrana are reportedly confident of winning the race for Kante’s signature, despite the fact that they are aware that they would be unable to match the level of salary that the Saudi Pro League club, who recently signed Cristiano Ronaldo on a reported $75 million-per-year deal, could propose.
Kante is hoping to return to action later this month after a hamstring injury suffered in an August match against Tottenham Hotspur kept him out.
